Albacete vs Real Zaragoza predictions

The odds are now stacked against Real Zaragoza as they bid to secure automatic promotion following a pretty desperate collapse in this final part of the season. Despite that, they will at least be in the running for 2nd place on the final matchday if they win this match against an Albacete side that is battling relegation.

The hosts are currently in 20th place, one point from safety. It’s a far cry from twelve months ago when they narrowly missed out on automatic promotion to LaLiga but they are still battling hard and victory here would most likely lift them out of the drop-zone heading into the final match-day. 

They are now one place lower than when they appointed Lucas Alcaraz in February but their form since lockdown has been pretty good with just 1 defeat in their last 8 matches, although that loss did come last time out at Elche.

Zaragoza meanwhile come into this game with the wheels seemingly falling off their promotion bid. They’ve taken just one point from their last five matches and were 4-0 down at one stage in their last fixture, a home game against struggling Real Oviedo.

They can cling to a minor degree of hope in that all their points in this final section of the season have come away and also in the fact that their main rivals for 2nd place are also flattering to deceive. However they simply have to turn the tide here and claim a much needed win if they are serious about joining Cadiz in advancing to the top flight via the automatic route.


Albacete vs Real Zaragoza Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

This is a really tough game to call as it’s hard to know how Zaragoza will react to that latest major setback. With automatic promotion now looking unlikely it may just free them up a bit but it won’t be easy against an Albacete side that is battling for their lives. The hosts have drawn all of their last 4 home games and a repeat looks likely here.
